Process Safety Summit

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Achieving excellence by driving process safety culture and leadership

The oil and gas industry is potentially one of the most hazardous industry sectors in the Mena regions. For example, It has been estimated that the rate of accidents of it is 2.5% higher than construction industry and 7% than other critical sectors.

The combination of powerful equipment, flammable chemicals and processes that are under high pressure can lead to hazardous and even deadly incidents. That's why it's essential for leaders, safety managers and supervisors to identify communicate and constantly train recommended safety controls and hazards that exist to each employee.

The process safety management discipline involves the full work-chain of the upstream, downstream and mid-stream sector, and it has the aim to prevent catastrophes.

The 11th edition of the annual process safety management summit, taking place in Abu Dhabi on September 23-26, will offer you the opportunity to detail investigate into the best practices currently used by the main GCC oil and gas companies by focusing into Safety Critical Equipment, Safety Critical Instruments and New Technologies.
